united states and iran. greta. >> thank you. i was at the white house for interview with sean spicer. i started by asking if president trump going to keep iran nuclear deal or not. >> the president has been outspoken about his distan for the iran, he thought it was bad deal. he thought we gave away too much to iran. he continues to have major issues with it. 25 sanctions were issued against -- iran got a sweetheart deal. the president's action today shows that he is not going to leave the actions unchecked. they are the first check in a sign that there's a new
administration. >> i think you said they are playing with fire. >> they are. iran should not be provoking us. they got a sweetheart deal. i think the united states needs to make sure they understand if they act out of the pro visions of the agreement, that we are going to act. >> the ballistic missile test does not have violated the deal with the u.s., right? >> there's no question that it violates the spirit of that. i think our actions today are in direct response to the -- >> they are trying to provoke us. >> there's no question about that. >> have you heard about israel on that. >> prime minister netanyahu come here on february 13.
i'm not going to get into those discussions. >> why do you think iran is doing this? >> for eight years they got a way with it. they want to know how much is changed. i think the president enacted forcefully by letting them understand this is not the administration they have been dealing with the eight years. >> sanctions have been imposed today. >> if you heard donald trump talk, the reason he said -- he doesn't talk about what he going to do. he doesn't telegraph it. he leaves everything on the table. what we is going to make sure iran understand that he is not go to let united states be treated this way for a deal in which they should be thankful.
>> have he spoken with our allies on this? >> he spoken to president ha lan and -- >> since the missile launch? >> not since the launch. especially to discuss these actions. >> iran said they took a slap at the president's inexperience. >> i think iran is going to feel the might of the sanctions and if they continue to act there's going to be more to come and they are playing with fire. >> we'll have much more ahead. with me david, amy from the boston globe. first to you, the iranian have
do the missile testing. it doesn't violate un resolution. your thoughts on this. they are threating the needle. >> they are. it did not violate the un resolution so this is provocation to see where they can go. it's very strategic because one can look at it see the response from the united states put us ahead of our allies, ahead of the partner we had and put us in a vulnerable position. >> he said they are playing with fire. and he not been afraid to do bold things. i don't get what the iranian are getting out of being provokive. >> yes. i would not want to provoke him
either. that's exactly what he wants. that's what he said his foreign policy going to be. he going to have wild card streak. for the iranians, they have politics to deal with too. people cannot role over with this kind of language. >> they didn't have to test. >> no. >> that's only going to get israel an grinnigry. we have prime minister comg leer on february 13. it reflects on our option on what we can do. this is adopting the obama policy. last year it was about nuclear iran deal. this is now a different issue they are trying to apply more pressure. the republican reporting is that obama administration put this in
place to put pressure on -- >> donald trump bulled trigger. >> he moving forward with the same polsicy. to have sean spicer go out there say you have been warned. you have fewer option. whether they say all options are on the table. what does it really mean. >> what assume our allies are thinking part of this agreement with iran? >> they are looking at this as wow, we've seen this before. rhetoric matters in -- >> you have red line with president obama in syria. rhetoric doesn't really sort of matter. >> the rhetoric can be troubling because it is a dare. so what happens in iran reacts.
>> we have deal with asad. i don't understand. i know iran is dangerous. a short distance from israel, you don't want to get israel mad either. >> this is a case where president trump is running up against candidate trump and beginning to realize to govern you cannot be bold as he has been on the campaign trail. you saw it in a norm of different areas in foreign policy. believe it or not. he has administration is moulelating a little bit. >> "new york times" reporting pillars of obama policy including israel to curve construction. i asked about his statement that future is settlement might be impediment to peace talks.
>> the settlement is should not be obstacle to peace. we'll have that conversation with the prime minister when he is here. president trump is to have peace in the region and middle east. so he something he going to continue to push for to figure out how to achieve that goal of peace between these two anybodi neighbors. >> do you expect them to move -- >> they president may discuss that during the campaign. he task the senior team to begin those deliberations to figure out what that would mean. >> we'll back with the panel. david, the settlement thing, is a horrible problem for the trump
administration. >> much more softer than what we saw on the campaign before he took the presidency. now suddenly he is president, he is signaling to israel back off the settlement. is he going to say that to netanyahu to his face when he gets here. he has ignored our direction before. will trump have a bitter relationship with him that's going to be the question. will he be able to as tough as spicer was there. >> joe, i think we are seeing, him speaking on both sides of his mouth. the settlements are okay in certain places and one can l argue this is a settlement freeze call, so we don't know. >> this is extensions or
modifications or -- >> in the bush administration there was letter exchanged you with build within certain blocks, don't build outside of them. what israeli propose is outside of this them. the big picture here the king abdul la is getting this as well. some construction inflames the situation. >> it's imflamed. >> thank you all. more from one-on-one interview with sean spicer at the white house. does the administration tone come interest the top. today's awkward meeting from at the white house on the controversial travel ban. in march, my husband didn't recognize our grandson.
